The Turn of the Screw

The Turn of the Screw

Based on the provocative tale of suspense, horror, and repressed sexuality, this adaptation gives the famous story yet another turn of its own. A young governess journeys to a lonely English manor to care for two recently orphaned children, but she is not their first governess. Her predecessor, Miss Jessel, drowned herself when she became pregnant by the sadistic valet, Peter Quint, who was also found dead soon after under mysterious circumstances. Now, the new governess has begun to see specters of Quint and Jessel haunting the children, and she must find a way to stop the fiends. But one frightening question tortures the would-be heroine: Are the ghosts real or are they the product of her own fevered imagination?
